Outside, you must wear a mask when you are out of your car unless the setting and arrangement of  vehicles & people allows proper social distancing.

• On-track instruction for novice and intermediate drivers will utilize different techniques.
• This year it will have plenty of non-contact and social distancing thrown into the mix.    

Drivers with trailers: You can take your rig to the track on Sunday night after 7:00 and you must 
be off the grounds by 9:00.

Monday starts with a quick meeting, then classroom for beginner and intermediate drivers in the Tufte Center which allows us to maintain respectful social distancing and have all the technology needed classes. The rest of the morning will be taken up by in-car exercises, led by our instructors. They will show you threshold braking techniques, side-to-side weight transfer in a slalom exercise, and an accident avoidance exercise. Classroom sessions continue off and on through the two days. If you are a novice you will be assigned an instructor. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the instruction may be lead-follow instead of the typical in car instruction. Instructors will be involved in lead-follow and corner observation techniques to help maintain our mission of educating all levels of drivers. More details will be released closer to the event.

We will be designing the registration, meetings, classrooms and instruction, etc., to comply with all necessary local and state restrictions (if any are still in place) and US Federal, Health Canada & CDC COVID-19 guidelines that apply to ensure the complete safety of our participants and staff.

In addition, there may be special restrictions and guidelines we will need to meet for track specific Safety Protocols in place at Road America. As portions of the US and states have begun to reopen, these guidelines have been constantly in flux over the last few months.

Please be assured that we will provide you with the most up-to-the-date information you will need in a timely fashion prior to the event.
